This one snuck by me for almost a year. I heard about the Golden Globe win, but I chalked it up to a hot take win like Shakepeare in Love at the Oscars. After all, this is the USA Network, the people behind such modern classics as "In Plain Sight" and "Burn Notice." No way this is legit.
Wrong. Very Wrong. This show is top notch from the jump. For those not fully aware, Mr. Robot is a computer hacker based drama that combines very current subject matter with a throw back retro feel with the title sequence graphics and the uninhibited use of Christian Slater(subtly brilliant). In wine lingo, this is a vintage Fincher with notes of Kubrick and Spike Jones.
I highly recommend this show if you have not watced it yet. I am only through epsiode 7 and I am very hooked. For those that still subscribe to nasty, filthy, money grubbing, bastard-child bundled cable services, all of season 1 is On-Demand right now and season 2 starts in July. Give it a binge if you have the chance.
